I can say with some confidence that I may be one of the most thankful moms on the planet this year. Looking back in reflection of the past year, I can’t believe where we are today. Not that I really know exactly where we are, but at this moment … life feels amazing! I can also say that I am one of the most blessed moms on the planet. This time last year, Noah was getting ready for massive radiation and chemo. He was so sick. He was 35ish pounds. Now he is 50. I can’t believe what all he has lived through this past year and to see him today (in a hat ) you wouldn’t know it. I am amazed by him everyday… no every second! Tonight, he and I were saying prayers… talking about life, death, being thankful and living everyday to the fullest! (Of course it’s always about me dying and him being sad – just like a normal child does.) He was telling me all of the things he was thankful for and I was just staring into his eyes. (Eyes with big, thick, inch long eyelashes!) I am amazed each day. We prayed for protection of his mind and spirit and every one of our prayers has been answered. He is so happy! I want to share his last month with you and share my thankfulness! Karate (he LOVES Karate!!!), our beach trip (Landin’s first black eye,) Halloween, the Symphony, Shooting with Big Grandpa (yes a real gun – don’t judge me ), Disney Quest, our New York trip – Noah piloting a helicopter of NYC (Amazing!!!!), St. Patrick’s Cathedral, backstage at the Lion King!!! He is so happy and he is living!!! We are living!!! Thank you Lord – Praise God for Whom all Blessing Flow!!! And I want to thank all of you. I could not write this without you and your support. We have been given so many gifts by so many wonderful people. Thank you all and God Bless you!
I pray that all of you and your families have a blessed and wonderful Thanksgiving! Enjoy each other!
